Well, Bout of Books is officially over! It was fun and interesting, I just wish I could have taken part in more of it. I never got much chance to visit other blogs participating, beyond those I currently follow, and I also never got the chance to participate in any of the mini-challenges. Truth be told, life really got in my way; I didn’t even read as much as I desired to, especially over the weekend. Still, I read quite a bit and made some good progress with my reading overall.
So, how’d I do? Well if you remember from my goals post, I wanted to read 3 books, read all of Dragon’s Keep, and make a good dent in Doctor Sleep. I decided in my starting point post that I would quantify “3 books” based on the number of pages (250 being the average length of a novel), since I’m always in the middle of reading multiple books. I aimed high with 1000 pages, but was hoping for at least 750. Drumroll please…..
I got super close to completing all my goals, only about 60 pages away. Honestly, I could have done it, but I did about zero reading on Saturday, which is what killed me. Oh well, I still did more reading than usual, and that’s what counts. And, in case you were wondering, here’s my overall book progress. As you can see, I wasn’t really in the mood to pick up two of these during my week of reading, that tends to be how it goes for me sometimes.
Some women collect shoes, others collect purses. I collect books.
